Christmas at the Wallace home

DUBBO CITY LIFE Comment by TIM PANKHURST MANAGING EDITOR

Push For Palliative seeing positive results PALLIATIVE Care advocate Yvonne McMaster updated the supporters of her Push For Palliative campaign this week, responding to the announcement last week that the NSW Government has allocated one palliative physician position to each of the seven rural Local Health Districts across the state. Minister for Health Brad Hazzard and Parliamentary Secretary for Health Leslie Williams made the announcement at Dubbo Base Hospital, confirming that there’ll be a specialist in the Western NSW local health district. As we’ve reported in Dubbo Photo News over the past few years of following the Push For Palliative campaign, Yvonne has long believed this is a crucial commitment for areas such as ours. “The next challenge is to see these nine positions filled as quickly as possible,” Yvonne said, suggesting the positions should be advertised quickly, and worldwide. “We strongly recommend that the rural positions be advertised as soon as possible in New Zealand, the UK and Ireland – as doctors sourced from abroad may be freer of family commitments that bind locally-produced doctors to the city. “The Immigration Minister has assured me there will be no visa impediments for foreign doctors wishing to apply,” Yvonne said.

Damage done at rail crossing

A LOCAL couple who were cycling along Yarrandale Road on Saturday morning contacted Dubbo Photo News to report a

A very important passenger on board: Santa paid a visit to Dubbo Airport recently, taking a ride in the Warrior Warbirds’ Nanchang Aircraft. Some lucky boys and girls were on hand to see that Santa had filled the Nanchang’s cargo compartment with presents. Thanks to pilot Mark Benton for the photo.

B-double truck driver had driven through the flashing red lights on the railway crossing, breaking one of the boom gates completely off as he went. “The boom gate was flung onto the railway track, and could have caused a derailment if the train had struck it,” this DPN reader told us. “We were on our push bikes and my husband was able to rush over and drag the boom gate off the track before the train could hit it. “We reported the matter to the police, but because it all happened so quickly we did not have much information for them to go on. “The train driver gave us a big wave and thank-you whistle as he went through the crossing,” she added. A few moments beforehand, the truck had passed quite close to the couple, even though they were riding single file. To offset the Thumbs Down to the truck driver, we can give a Thumbs Up to this local couple for the way they handled the situation. And Thumbs Up, too, to the maintenance crews responsible for that crossing, which is just on the city side of the Animal Shelter. They had repaired the dam-

age very quickly, which is a relief since the missing gate would be a major safety hazard.

Message not getting through to tech heads YOU’D think every industry would be having a very close look at how it operates and the attitude of the people within, in light of the enormous controversy surrounding Hollywood film producer Harvey Weinstein. The #MeToo campaign that has followed has seen many, many come forward saying they too have been subjected to unwanted advances from powerful people. Ironically, given the #MeToo campaign has been strong on social media, the message didn’t quite make it to Silicon Valley in time for Christmas. In what must surely be a case of the tech giants’ having their heads in their own data clouds, some of the biggest companies have been paying beautiful women to attend their Christmas parties and pose as employees. “The idea is to liven up the parties for the company engineers and other staff, mostly men, who work there,” The Australian reports. How sad.

WE reported last week that the Johnstons of Lakeland Drive have lit up their home for all to see again this year – something they’ve been doing for the past 29 years. We had word this week from another local family who have earned an equally loyal following with their display and Christmas charity in recent years. Cherie and Colin Wallace of 122 Baird Drive in West Dubbo put on a Christmas show each year, and also get into the Christmas spirit by supporting local charities. They’re currently looking for donations of gifts (new and unwrapped) for the Salvation Army. As the Wallaces point out, “Just one gift is all it takes so no child goes without.” Help support less fortunate people in Dubbo and the surrounding area – all donations will be appreciated. Ideally your gifts will be suitable for kids aged from 1 to 17 years – it could be toys, perfume, nail polishes, gift packs, cinema vouchers, footballs... anything you think a child would like. And the Wallaces have an extra treat again this year with Mr and Mrs Claus visiting their home to greet passers-by on December 23, 24 and 25. So drop by, say ‘hi’ and see the lights!

Laughter is the best medicine By YVETTE AUBUSSON-FOLEY

HAVE you ever tried not laughing around someone who has the giggles? Only to find you can’t resist and before too long you’re giggling too, with no idea why? Science tells us laughing is more to do with social bonding than a reaction to something funny, and tests show when we’re in conversation, the person doing the talking does the most laughing. Our brains have what’s called a mirror region which mimics other people’s actions, and is why ‘the giggles’ can be so contagious. We are 30 times more likely to laugh if we’re with someone else. Apparently when alone, people are more likely to talk to themselves (phew! that’s actually normal!), or smile, than to laugh. Oh. So giggling my head off in public at random because a funny idea just popped into my head isn’t so normal then? Example. Leaving the office for lunch the other day, I took fright at a life-size hairy Tarantula sitting on the wall just above the light switch by the back door, about eye height, as I turned the handle to go. Being mildly arachnophobic, I jumped. Being mildly stupid, I laughed and kept laughing, to myself, as I walked out to the carpark. Was I trying to have a social connection with this spider? It would definitely be a one- ` Stats show way relationship because the that laughter spider’s made of plastic and can boost was obviously put there as a the immune prank. system by up By me. to 40 per cent... And, I forgot. Now, Dubbo Photo News is renowned for being ‘the happy paper’. We focus on the best stories on our community and celebrate them. As if that wasn’t enough on its own, we’ve amped up the office fun-factor just a touch this year by starting a tradition of pranking. I believe I’m to blame. Nothing life threatening – we’re all grown-ups here – but exiting my office is done with extreme caution in case of an ambush; light switches are examined before entering darkened offices in case plastic spiders are afoot, the tops of doors are scanned for halfcharged plastic cups of water, and I keep a loaded water pistol by my desk at all times in case the need to return fire arises. If this office tradition has done anything, it’s guaranteed we all go home each day with at least one or two good belly laughs under our belts. Thank-you science for confirming that laughter really is the best medicine. Stats show it can boost the immune system by up to 40 per cent. Oh, and if you’re looking for a seasonally appropriate idea to prank your co-workers, try wrapping their desk in Christmas paper. And everything on it. We did!  feedback@dubbophotonews.com.au

The message from the head of this region’s new Rural Crime Prevention Team is...

December 14-20, 2017 Dubbo Photo News

‘Report the crime’ By JOHN RYAN CAMERON WHITESIDE will head up the new Rural Crime Prevention Team in this area, it was announced in Dubbo on Tuesday. He is an experienced and successful investigator and has spent much of his recent career as a detective inspector working as crime manager for the former Mudgee Local Area Command. “I’m excited by the challenge – the team will be all about disruption and also educating the community in relation to better security and training, not just the rural crime investigators but also the other police within our community,” Insp Whiteside said in Dubbo this week. “Currently there’s 34 rural crime investigators around the state, they’ll be supported by a number of sergeants in key locations and over time they’ll also be supported by intelligence analysts. “The idea of that is to have a wide coverage; to have the ability to come together at any given time and in force because we want to make inroads, not only in to the prevention of crime, but to target criminals – and I’m confident we can do that,” he said.

Detective Inspector Cameron Whiteside: “Whether it’s stock, machinery. We want to hear about it.” PHOTO: DUBBO PHOTO NEWS

Detective Inspector Whiteside said that besides himself there are currently three rural crime specialists in the Orana Mid-Western Police District, and resourcing and capacity would evolve into the future. He believes the community needs to buy in to the new deployments and strategies from the NSW Police Force’s re-engineering process which is currently being developed under NSW Police Commissioner Michael Fuller, who was also at the official

launch of the Rural Crime Prevention Teams on Tuesday, along side Minister for Police and Member for Dubbo Troy Grant. “I’d just like to urge the rural community to follow us with this and increase the reporting of crime, because if we don’t know it’s happening we can’t do much about it,” Insp Whiteside said. “Whether it’s stock, machinery. We want to hear about it.” He took questions at the launch about frustrations of landholders in the past who’d gone through

the crime reporting process only to become disillusioned when nothing happened. “It definitely has been a problem. I acknowledge that we haven’t always got it right and that’s what this is all about, putting the resources in the right place,” Insp Whiteside said. “It was identified as a problem in the Bradshaw Report but, moving forward, if we can get an increase in the reporting of crime I’m sure that we can get results. “These are specialist investigators. Yhey’re not only detectives but a lot of them have got backgrounds in the rural industry and they come from rural industries,” he said. Police commissioner Mick Fuller said it’s important to have specialist officers working on specialist areas. “A lot of these commands have been very stretched which means a lot of officers have had very high workloads, which makes it challenging to do thorough investigations, but the allocation of resources over the last couple of months through re-engineering will really put plenty of police on the ground in this area,” Commissioner Fuller said.

IN BRIEF

Dubbo’s Dementia patients and carers’ long wait for care DEMENTIA patients and their carers in Dubbo and district, who have been told they may have to wait 12 months or more to receive home-based care, will not be surprised by the Department of Health’s report into the new arrangements for Home Care packages which show overall demand for home care is increasing. The average number of daily approvals has grown by 23.9 per cent since March 2017. Dementia Australia feels the appropriate level of support is not there when people need it, citing 70 per cent of people diagnosed with dementia live at home.

WHO AM I?

The learning grounds at Fletcher’s By JOHN RYAN

AT just 18, Blake Greaves is celebrating two months working at Fletcher International Exports in Dubbo. When he first took the job, he said he was unaware that it would open all sorts of career pathways compared to the part-time pizza delivery job he left when he signed on at the abattoirs. “I came for the interview and they pretty much gave me the job on the spot I suppose. They asked me what I preferred to do and I got the job from there, and it’s opened up a lot of opportunities for me,” Blake said. Human Resources manager Maddy Herbert chipped in: “Mostly at the interview applicants are told ‘this is where we need you’ so Blake must have made a great first impression,” Maddy said, pointing out the importance of recommendations from community partners who refer potential job-seekers, in this case Headspace. Blake said he’ll always be grateful to Headspace for that headsup and head-start. “I’m grateful to the guys at Headspace for recommending this to me. Kevin Saul (Senior Vocational Specialist at Headspace Dubbo) gave me Maddy’s phone number,” Blake said. Top of the list for Blake is the huge number of things he’s seen and learnt in such a short space of

time, and he’s keen to have plenty more challenges thrown at him. “It’s good, they’ve given me heaps of different opportunities, I’ve recently got my forklift license which I didn’t think I would until a long while down the track.

I’m training to be a supervisor so I’m moving up the ranks,” Blake told Dubbo Photo News. “I’ve been in a lot of different sections so I’m learning lots of things. I’ve been in the chilled load-out and the frozen load-out,

but I’ve also experienced the hot and cold boning rooms as well as the offal room and the pet food stores – there’s a lot of different things that I’ve learnt about. “They even offer apprenticeships for things like electricians and I wouldn’t have expected opportunities like that out at an abattoir. Then there’s the export office which I didn’t even think of when I first came, I thought it was just about cutting meat to be honest,” he said. Already he says he’s telling his friends and family to come and join up. “I do like the people here, it’s a lot of fun to be around all of them and I have a lot of friends out here already,” Blake said, adding that he appreciates the diversity of the workforce. “The opportunities that I’ve gotten already are amazing so we’ll have to see what the future holds. There’s so many opportunities here I don’t think I could grab them all if I tried – I wouldn’t have the time – (but I will) grab hold of any that I can!” The fact the senior managers almost all started on the floor, just like he has, gives Blake the dream that he can achieve anything in his career. “It makes me think I actually have a chance to do something with my life so it’s good – that’s pretty good because I was expecting to be cutting meat,” Blake said.

Dubbo Photo News December 14-20, 2017 YOUTH CRIME

Path of destruction as kids run wild BY NATALIE HOLMES WITH children as young as eight years old participating in acts of violence including lighting fires and breaking windows, police in Wellington are adopting a whole-community approach to bring the trail of destruction to an end. “We have noticed a spike in vandalism and we have noticed a spike in property offences that we believe are attributed to young people in the areas,” Orana Local Area Command Inspector Jason Pietruszka confirmed. “There’s been breaking of windows, damage to vehicles, a vacant property broken into and damaged, and fires in grassed areas have been lit. “Some of this is happening in the middle of the day. Kids as young as eight are involved in criminal behaviour which is a huge concern. It appears that there are one to two main perpetrators and other hangers-on. “We do ask that if people sight this type of behaviour that we can attend and take action. We have various avenues at our disposal that we can deal with children. Police can sit them down so that they get an understanding of what they’ve done. “It’s something we are looking seri-

ously at.” Inspector Pietruszka said that up until the age of 18, children are still considered as a minor and are under their parents’ protection. However, there are concerns about this level of care. “We are taking kids home at 2 or 3 in the morning. In general, 99 per cent of parents will know where their child is. But others are not that concerned, some are ignorant to the fact.” This is when the problem becomes a welfare issue. “That’s why we are working with other government agencies – it’s not just a policing matter. We need to have a joint approach to this issue. We are working with other government agencies and giving it all the attention we can. I think it’s appalling that they think this type of behaviour is acceptable.” Inspector Pietruszka said police are also working with the Department of Education to come up with a solution to children who are unhappy in the mainstream education system and may be missing school as a result. “There are other forms of schooling – the mainstream is not for everyone. There are so many alternatives.” Police have asked for witnesses of crime not to hesitate and to call them immediately. “The community can be rest-assured that we do take these matters seriously and we understand their concerns.” Anyone who sees a crime or has been the victim of a crime is urged to contact Wellington (6840 2099) or Dubbo (6883 1599) police stations or call Triple 0.

DR TOBY PIDDOCKE is passionate about cleaner water in our inland rivers and is keen to see massive coordination along our waterways if the herpes virus targeting European carp is released as planned into the Murray Darling Basin (MDB). As the research project manager for the National Carp Control Plan (NCCP), he’s responsible in large part for testing the virus to ensure it can’t harm any species except carp. On top of that, he also has to take into account the best ways to clean up the dead carp, but also plan the best ways to ensure any radical upswing in native fish stocks isn’t limited by a lack of habitat for species like Murray Cod to live and breed. After suggestions at a Dubbo meeting that communities could work together to provide biological plantings to help clean nutrients from our rivers, he was keen to explore the possibilities, jumping in a ute to drive just out of town to check out an on-ground Mid-Macquarie Landcare project which is comparing two starkly different methods of land management. These two dams are less than 100 metres apart, but the contrast is like that between night and day, he said. One was dug out and left in its original state about 10 years ago; today the water is murky with suspended

sediment and the banks around it appear lifeless and uninviting. The other had a few reeds and other plantings around its inside banks – that kick-start has seen nature take over, with the initial reeds beginning the process of filtering the harmful nutrients from the dam water. Over a surprisingly short period of time the reeds took off and now cover large areas of the banks and shallows. That shelter, in turn, has spurred the growth of numerous other plant species resulting in an incredibly biodiverse and resilient ecosystem. This has created habitat for land and water-borne native creatures, as well as native birds whose footprints almost cover the muddy banks. The water is clear enough to see rocks on the dam bottom and local

kids use it as their pool in the summer months, sharing the water with large yellow bellies and frogs. “It’d be great if we could get communities creating habitat along rivers like the Macquarie,” Dr Piddocke said. “These dams show what’s possi-

YOUR STARS ARIES: You’ll find yourself planning your entourage’s holiday events without much help. You will also have a number of projects to finish in a short period of time. TAURUS: Although you will receive numerous invitations to participate in upcoming holiday festivities, you may rather see yourself leaving the hot weather behind and heading somewhere cooler. GEMINI: You will be quite sensitive and it won’t take much for you to get emotional. You will need to make some changes to rediscover a zest for life. Holiday festivities will help put a smile back on your face. CANCER: It’s not always possible to please everyone, despite all your efforts and compromises. You will have to weigh the pros and cons in a particular situation that will require much finesse. LEO: Lots of work is on the horizon! You will be blazingly efficient and end your week on a roll, at home as

Bank merchant ‘tap and go’ fees to be reduced

THE Wellington Community Christmas Party will be held this Friday, December 15, in Cameron Park from 5pm to 8pm. Residents from the whole Regional Council area are welcome to enjoy the festivities including carols with the town band, free sausage sandwiches, children’s rides and a visit from Santa. Cameron Park is located on Nanima Crescent in Wellington which passes in front of Cameron Park in the town centre. Until December 23, Wellington is celebrating Jingle on the Bell, including shopping incentives, Cobb&Co coach rides (Saturdays, December 16 and 23) and Christmas shop front window displays turned into Christmas grottos.

SHOPPERS across the region will be relieved to hear the Australian Small Business and Family Enterprise Ombudsman has supported a parliamentary committee recommendation for banks to reduce “tap and go” transaction fees. The House of Representatives Standing Committee on Economics recommended banks let merchants send tap-and-go payments from debit cards through eftpos, instead of credit. The committee has given banks until April 1 next year to comply or regulatory action should be taken. The average total merchant fee for a debit transaction is 0.26 per cent with eftpos, and 0.58 per cent with Visa or Mastercard, and it’s higher for small businesses.

much as at work. Your guests will be blown away by your efforts. VIRGO: You’ll be placed on a pedestal by someone for whom you have great respect. You could accomplish a remarkable – perhaps even heroic – feat. You may save somebody from tragedy, if only by listening attentively. LIBRA: You may change your holiday plans at the last minute. You may also decide to redecorate your living space on a whim. A family member will need particular attention. SCORPIO: You may buy yourself a car as a Christmas gift! You will be on the road a lot to finish shopping for all your upcoming social events. SAGITTARIUS: Be careful with your spending

this week: you wouldn’t want to max out your credit card. Pay your bills in advance. At home, you will need lots of affection from your partner. CAPRICORN: Your emotions will be all over the place. Fortunately, you’ll be back on track with the summer solstice. Your ideas and enthusiasm will lead to a welcome break from your regular social routine. AQUARIUS: Idealism can be healthy, as long as you manage to stay grounded in reality. Avoid the news this week and let a good novel carry you to a world that’s better aligned with your views. PISCES: Your help will be required to bring many people together. An event that you’ll have organised will draw an impressive crowd. A spontaneous group trip could be in the cards. The luckiest signs this week: Aries, Taurus and Gemini.

Wesley Players to debut at DRTCC with award winning play

ers suffered from appendicitis and had to take an unscheduled trip to hospital, it meant the show was postponed from October to December 16,” Wesley House Players Theatre Company director Rhonda Kerr explained. “It’s always been a case of ‘the show will go on’ though. It’s the first time we have done a show at the Dubbo Regional Theatre and it has been a challenge. We hope that Dubbo and surrounds will support our local company and, despite it being so close to Christmas, come along and see a group of very talented people who have learnt LOTS of lines and remained committed to putting on a good production,” she said. “Despite its title, the show is entertaining to both female and male audiences alike. The different reactions from male and female audiences is interesting, so we hope the guys come along as well. “The show is classed as a comedy but has quite a few

dramatic moments all based around truth, loyalty, sex, love and the meaning of marriage. There is also a bit of strong language and graphic dialogue though, so be prepared,” Rhonda said. The cast of “Secret Bridesmaids Business” includes the very talented Erin Walsh, Erifilli Davis, Sasha Brook, Ingrid Bown, Charmaine Wray, Robert Zavadszky and Raelene Burn. Opportunities for actors have trebled in the last decade in Dubbo with amateur theatre groups emerging at the PCYC, Macquarie Conservatorium Youth Musical Theatre, Western Plains Cultural Centre Black Box Theatre, and Riverside Church Drama Club Dubbo, plus a burgeoning film making industry which draws on the

home-grown talent pool. The Wesley House Players’ own story is entrenched in Dubbo’s theatrical history, having staged musicals and plays since 1969. Names like Betty Stroud, Freda Gibb, Helen Humphries and Howard Lees are the kind of community theatre heritage which has kept the Wesley House Players on solid ground year after year.

IN BRIEF

Public forum to make taxi services more available and affordable DUBBO will host an Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART) public forum early next year to discuss making taxi services more available and affordable. Proposed measures include freezing maximum fares for hailing a taxi in the street or from a rank at 2014 levels; and making it easier and cheaper for new taxis to enter the market with a 10 per cent increase in the number of regional taxi licences. Also proposed is allowing new licences to provide rank and hail services where they are needed most; and enabling taxi service providers in small towns and remote areas, where populations are low and there is little rank and hail work, to set their own rank and hail fares.

FOR the first time since 1969, the Wesley House Players Theatre Company will be treading the boards on a very different stage to their traditional Wesley Church hall, performing for the first time at Dubbo Regional Theatre. The almost 50-year-old theatre company has chosen a play guaranteed to delight audiences, backed up by the play’s author, an award-winning screenwriter who can claim Flying Doctors, The Secret Life of Us, Blue Heelers, McLeod’s Daughters and Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries as examples of her prolific works. Written by Elizabeth Coleman, “Secret Bridesmaids Business” tells the story of Meg Bacon, her bridesmaids, a much organised mum and their pre-wedding ‘girlie night’ of fun. What could possibly go wrong? You could ask the cast the same question. The December 16 performance is a new date to replace the original October show after car breakdowns, damaged sets and an appendicitis attack changed the script, so to speak. “When one of the perform-

Tutor Gala Evening for doctors

Carer zones being built for Dubbo Hospital single rooms

MEMBERS of the local medical community came together recently for the School of Rural Health’s (SRH) annual Tutor Gala Evening. The SRH engages local doctors, specialists and health professionals to teach their medical students, who are spending one year of their degree studying in Dubbo. The SRH invited Dr Natalie May to be the guest speaker and she gave a presentation on innovations in medical education, including new uses for social media and even blogging from a “virtual hospital”. Dr May is currently working in emergency retrieval at Sydney HEMS (Helicopter Emergency Medical Service) and has been a leader in the field of emergency paediatrics both in Australia and internationally. The annual Tutor Gala Evening is also a wonderful opportunity for the SRH to thank their tutors, who have backgrounds spanning from local GPs to emergency retrieval specialists from the Royal Flying Doctor Service. The Tutor Gala Evening was held at Lazy River Estate on Thursday, November 30, and opened with a welcome dance Dr Natalie May, whose presentation focused on innovation in medical education from local Indigenous performers.

CARERS will soon have the opportunity to stay overnight with a patient thanks to a dedicated carer’s zone included in each single room in Dubbo Hospital’s new surgical in-patient unit, which is currently under construction. “Each carer’s zone features a couch with inbuilt storage that converts into a single bed at night, allowing a family member or carer to provide care and assistance to a patient while they are recovering,” Member for Dubbo Troy Grant said. Hospital general manager Debbie Bickerton said the carer’s zone was designed by staff and consumers during the hospital’s planning phase to improve the health outcomes for patients after surgery.

The evening includes entertainment, a special appearance by Santa, food and refreshments, and safe-flame candles. “Food vans are run by community groups who then put money back into their community organisations,” said Rotary spokesman Malcolm Cockrum. These will include the PCYC, Lions and Wellington Junior Rugby, and the Scouts will be selling glows sticks and candles. Guests can bring their own chairs, rugs, and vocal cords to the no-alcohol event.

OPINION, ANALYSIS, FEATURES, DEPTH. PARENTING

Stepping a thin line

Being a step parent is one of the most challenging yet rewarding roles in life. You don’t plan for it, yet somehow when it happens, it’s who you are. One day, you are dating a guy with children and the next you are helping to raise them. NATALIE HOLMES talked to three parents – from different parts of the world and with different family make ups – about the tears, triumphs and everything in between of co-parenting someone else’s children. Sonia is a working mum of four from Campbelltown. As a step-parent to three children who all have different mums, she says it can be a rollercoaster ride at times. How long have you been a step parent? I have been a step parent for 14 years this year. Before you started planning a family, had you ever thought about step parenting? No, never... what girl dreams of growing up and having to look after other people’s children? All you want to do is grow up, get married and have children of your own. How many children are in your care as a step parent? I have three. One is 22 and we see him all the time and always have, and the others we see very rarely due to reasons from their mothers, a boy, 14, and girl, 15. We have come to the conclusion that they know we are here and have told them our home is open to them at any time and, when they are ready, they can call or come and visit. Do you have any biological children and, if yes, how many? Yes, one boy, age 13. Do you feel there is a difference between being a biological parent and a step parent? Yes, there definitely is. I think that you have to be a parent to your biological children and you try to be a friend to the step children. I think you do that more so to get them to like you. How does that make you feel? It is really hard sometimes. You feel like you are doing a good job and then one day you’re the worst person in the world and you don’t even know why. Does it affect how you treat the children? No, nothing really affects the way I treat the children. I need to show my son that every-

one has to follow the same rules he has to follow, even if it means that it is different at their mum’s house. What are some of the challenges of step parenting? I find that when it gets too hard for the children and they don’t like something, then they just want to go home to mum. I cannot have one set of rules for my son and one for them. My biggest thing is my son’s feelings. After his sister didn’t want to come visit anymore, he got really angry at her and tells people he doesn’t like her or sometimes that he doesn’t have a sister. The argument is between them. What are the rewards? My rewards are the bond that my son and the oldest boy have. They are the best of mates and he coaches him in different sports. Do you feel that blended families are becoming more common in today’s society? Well I don’t recall many when I was growing up, so I sure do. It’s like it is the norm. Have you sought support for step parenting outside your immediate family? No, I didn’t really need anything other than maybe chatting to friends in conversation when venting after a bad day. Are there others in your circle of friends who are also step parents? I have at least six friends that are step parents. Is there enough information available for step parents about their role? I didn’t really think to look for a book on being a step parent, I did when I was a parent. I think every family is different. I am a step parent to three children with three different mums so I see that all of those mums treat their children differently, have different views, rules, values and even attitudes towards their father – and that makes it hard. (Try to find that in a book). When

“I get to see someone I love grow up. I have a family line, someone that is going to inherit the fruits of my labours. I have someone in my life to worry about. My life isn’t just about me anymore...” – Trey, pictured with his stepdaughter Bebe.

bringing up your own child, you can read a book on how to be a parent and you would hope that you would treat your step children as you would your own child. I think a parent is a parent either to your own or someone else’s child. What advice would you give others about step parenting? It’s not easy, you have many ups and downs but remember that these children will grow up one day and realise that you’re not going anywhere and will work out for themselves that you’re not so bad. Can you recommend any books, websites or support groups? No, sorry. •••

Trey is an Aussie expat living in Little Rock, Arkansas. He has really stepped into the role of parent to 21-year-old Bebe since the loss of his husband Carl in July. Before that, he was the ‘cool’ step dad. How long have you been a step parent? Three years. Before you started planning a family, had you ever thought about step parenting? No, I never wanted children. How many children are in your care as a step parent? One. Do you have any biological children and, if yes, how many? None. Do you feel there is a difference between being a biological parent and a step parent? Yes. How does that make you feel? When my husband was alive, as he was the biological parent, I felt like I had an easier job of it. I could be the ‘cool’ step dad, be a lot more relaxed about rules and guidance. I would never have the natural authority of the biological dad so I could fit better into the role of ‘friend’ rather than authorities parent. Things have changed now that my husband is deceased, even though I still don’t have the natural authority of biological Dad, I have landed the job. I feel I have to be a lot more responsible in offering guidance and how I act around my step daughter. Now she looks to me for adult guidance when she would have normally gone to her biological father. Does it affect how you treat the children? No. What are some of the challenges of step parenting? The lack of au-

thority. I don’t feel I can just say “you can’t do that” and expect that to be adhered to. I have to prove my argument. Even if I can do that, my step daughter is now 21 so she’s fully able to make her own decisions and live with the consequences. What are the rewards? I get to see someone I love grow up. I have a family line, someone that is going to inherit the fruits of my labours. I have someone in my life to worry about. My life isn’t just about me anymore. Do you feel that blended families are becoming more common in today’s society? Absolutely. Have you sought support for step parenting outside your immediate family? No. Are there others in your circle of friends who are also step parents? No, not in Arkansas. Is there enough information available for step parents about their role? I can’t really answer that, I’ve not looked. What advice would you give others about step parenting? Make sure your step kids are awesome, it makes being a step parent so much easier. I’ve only been a step parent once and I’m so lucky. I met my step daughter when she was 16 and I liked her right from the start. To this day, I’m grateful to have her in my life and I’d choose to have her in my life even if I wasn’t related to her. On that point, technically, as my husband has passed away, I’m not legally her step parent anymore, but I’m the closest thing to a father figure she has in her life and that is my role, always will be. Can you recommend any books, websites or support groups? Nope, I’ve just been winging it. •••

Anne from Armidale runs her own business which she juggles with parenting five children. She sometimes struggles with the line between friendship and discipline. How long have you been a step parent? Almost three years. Before you started planning a family, had you ever thought about step parenting? Never Do you feel there is a difference between being a biological parent and a step parent? I love them all, but you do tend to share a bond with the child you carried

inside your body. How does that make you feel? I am not upset by it, it’s just the way it is. Does it affect how you treat the children? Not at all. What are some of the challenges of step parenting? Knowing that you are not their actual mother and having to deal with their actual mother. Trying to be their friend but also knowing that you have to enforce rules such as homework and chores. It’s such a fine line to tread. What are the rewards? Feeling the love from them, like when they give you a cuddle and curl up next to you on the lounge or you share a joke with them. Knowing that they all have each other as siblings. Do you feel that blended families are becoming more common in today’s society? Absolutely, it’s more the norm today than it ever has been before. Have you sought support for step parenting outside your immediate family? Yes, I have looked at websites and reading materials. Are there others in your circle of friends who are also step parents? Yes. Is there enough information available for step parents about their role? Yes and no. It can be a very individual thing but it’s also universal. What advice would you give others about step parenting? Patience, patience, patience. If you are struggling, just give it some time. Can you recommend any books, websites or support groups? I read a good book called “Stepmother Love” by Sally Collins which contains a collection of short stories about different situations. It makes you realise that you are not alone in your journey.

Thefts, road toll are ruining Christmas John Ryan OPINION & ANALYSIS Send your news tips to john.ryan@panscott.com.au or 0429 452 245 txt is best

Christmas minibike stolen FOR some reason Christmas can bring out the worst in people. Local trucking contractor Ben Fairman bought a 2014 Suzuki DRZ70 as a present and after taking this quick pic on his phone when he picked it up, spent a couple of days away in his truck. On his return, he found that someone felt they deserved the minibike more than his family. There are no words for people who do this. If anyone knows anything about this crime please call Dubbo police. I’ve heard of at least eight minibikes that’ve been stolen around Dubbo during the course of this year so if you have one in the shed, whack a chain around the back wheel and lock it to something that can’t be moved.

Mid-Western Police District has been allocated an extra nine police as well as four probationary constables from the recent graduating class, so the raw numbers are at least up to scratch.

talk about the state’s horrific road toll, that conversation sparked by four separate motorbike fatalities across the state last weekend

alone – not a great start to the Christmas season. “I can put more police on the road but people have to stop speeding, they have to stop driving whilst they’re impaired and using mobile phones, and take breaks when they’re on the road,” Commissioner Fuller said. Can’t fault that logic. Without throwing stones in glass houses, the usage of mobile phones while driving is a growing problem just from what I see driving round town, and some people are so blatant about it. This is something we probably need ongoing blitzes on to make it normal not to use your phone while driving.

There’s far too much detail to go into in this column, but the changes have been brought about because of community concerns, and to my mind it’s all positive. Mick Fuller was also quizzed on whether Wellington would be getting a 24-hour policing station. With the new jail just being finished there are plenty of questions being asked about what’s needed to support that new prisoner population. The jail does bring jobs and an economic boost for the town but it also means a heavier load on all sorts of support services including police, paramedics, corrective services and a host of other providers – this will no doubt be an ongoing debate as to what’s fair and necessary for the state government to provide in relation to the extra workloads for agencies.

Wellington arrest SOCIAL media is in an uproar after police charged a 55-year-old man, who was working on a house in Wellington on Saturday, after he allegedly persuaded an eightyear-old girl to get into his vehicle about 12.30pm and drove from the scene. The girl was reported missing and police from Orana-Mid Western Police District, with the assistance of the Child Abuse and Sex Crimes Squad, initiated an investigation. Dubbo Local Court heard the man allegedly sexually assaulted the girl before returning her an hour later to where she was taken from. Police officers were at the scene because they had been searching for the child; they arrested the man and took him to Wellington Police Station where he was charged with five offences: • Take person, intend commit serious indictable offence, • Aggravated sexual assault – victim under the age of 16 years, • Sexual intercourse with child under age of 10 years,

Men’s group launches South Campus garden ONE of the great “good news” stories in Dubbo has been the redemption of men who’ve joined the Gagamin Mens’ Group. This week, the first sod was turned at South Campus by the men, students and staff – they’re all working in collaboration with a range of agencies and organisations to make this project happen.

Di McNaboe said the layers of learning about all aspects of life and culture can be found through better interaction with nature. “It’s a fun way for kids to get immersed in and learn their traditional languages because they can take their smart phones or their tablets on a bush walk and they can focus them onto the generat-

ed images and that will bring up information on the plants,” Aunty Di said. “That will bring up information on the plant, the scientific name, the common name and the Wiradjuri name, and maybe some of the other uses for the plant as well. “That’ll be a great thing and it’d be nice to have that incorporated

Mundine’s knockout punches FORMER Dubbo deputy mayor Warren Mundine has bounced from one high profile position to the next since leaving this fair city, but he’s back in town to-

day (Thursday, December 14) to launch his book at the local library. Titled “Warren Mundine In Black and White” it pulls no punches. By all accounts it’s a great read, and there are several sections where he talks about politics in Dubbo, including his recollections of standing for Labor for the seat of Dubbo in the 1999 state election against then mayor Tony McGrane and former 2DU radio host Richard Mutton. I think there’ll be a long queue of locals wanting to buy this book. z Send your news tips to john.ryan@panscott.com.au or 0429 452 245 txt is best z Additional reporting by Dubbo Photo News staff. z Note: John Ryan is also a councillor on Dubbo Regional Council.

OPINION & ANALYSIS LETTERS & FEEDBACK

THE TOONS’ VIEWS

Greg Smart replies to SSM correspondents

Editor, For over eight years I have written opinion articles for Dubbo Weekender, on topics ranging from the vagaries of Australian and American politics, racial discrimination, alcohol abuse, the absurdity of reality television and social media, cruelty towards asylum seekers, the rorting of the pink batts and school halls schemes – with barely a reply from the readership. However, my recent writings about religion (in context of the marriage equality debate and same sex marriage survey) triggered more written feedback than I have ever received. This is understandable. The notion of Same Sex Marriage is a huge change to the fabric of society, and human nature being what it is, strong opinions formed by personal experience, morality or religiosity exist at the edges of either side of the debate. I offer my columns up as my opinion on a topic, and I respect people whose opinion differs from mine, and I appreciate the feedback. What I wanted to highlight in my previous article [“The Postal Survey we did not need to have”, Dubbo Photo News, November 23] was the actions of the small number of hard right conservatives in government who advocated for the survey, and campaigned hard for the ‘No’ case under the auspices of the Australian Christian Lobby (ACL) on every available media outlet – whilst collectively painting themselves as the silent minority. These are the ‘Christian Soldiers’ I alluded to, politicians who spoke at the ACL conference and declared battle against becoming a persecuted minority. It is worth noting that many of the ‘No’ advocates decided to exercise their silence/free speech by leaving Parlia-

ment and abstaining from the vote. The author of the most recent feedback on my article criticised me for leaving out the ‘God factor’ and being guilty of making seeping statements. I thought I was clear on my opinion of god and the separation of church and state – no religion in public schools and no religion in the parliament – and that freedom from religion and freedom of religion must coexist. Put another way, I appreciate that this writer has a religious faith; but don’t quote bible passages to me as my morals and free will are well formed, innate and immune to revelation. Please keep your feedback coming though – voicing an opinion is part of free speech, and 2018 is shaping up to be another year worthy of discussion. Greg Smart, Dubbo

Reducing deaths on regional roads SAVING lives and reducing serious injuries on regional roads is everyone’s responsibility. It is up to governments at all levels to build and maintain better, safer roads and as drivers we need to accept responsibility by purchasing the safest car we can afford and driving in a manner which respects other road users. You are more likely to be killed or injured on regional roads than any others, and it is up to us to do everything we can to reduce road trauma over the holiday period. This Christmas, if you are driving for work or on holidays, please take care on our roads and drive at speeds which reflect the local conditions. Christmas is a time for celebrations

and it is important to make arrangements to get home safely if you have been partying with friends. Don’t mix alcohol and driving. The decisions we make will impact on our families, friends and other members of the community. Drive safe and enjoy a merry Christmas. Darren Chester, Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, Parliament House, Canberra

Let’s make this the season of belonging For many Australians, the festive season is one of joy and connection, where friendships and family are celebrated, food is shared and holiday plans are made. Yet for others in our

neighbourhoods, that sense of togetherness, warmth and belonging will not be felt, and rather an acute sense of loneliness will take hold. Christmas Day might be lunch for one, sleeping rough or spent with the paralysing uncertainty of not knowing where family is, after being separated because of war or conflict. There is hope. At Red Cross loneliness is not something to be ashamed of. We’re there for people who have nobody else: calling and visiting, driving them to appointments, offering one-to-one support to those struggling with mental illness, or giving a warm welcome to those seeking safety from violence or persecution. We know loneliness doesn’t

discriminate. It stealthily creeps into our lives, no matter our age, gender or ethnicity, and takes hold when tragedy happens, like losing a loved one, a divorce or losing your job. And if you don’t catch it early, loneliness can reach chronic levels and have a significant effect on our health. But it’s bigger than that. When there’s no one by your side, and you’re feeling deeply isolated, communities start to become less trusting, there’s more fear and places start to feel less safe. It’s time for Australians to change that. Red Cross is calling on you to make this the Season of Belonging. Jody Broun Australian Red Cross

Wrong Way Go Back for Sichuan Sam’s one belt, one road policy Yvette AubussonFoley OPINION SAM DASTYARI is a shining example of an ordinary person in extraordinary circumstances, and hasn’t that brought the hangers-on out of the bamboo forest to test his mettle? Instead of standing up for Australia’s best interests – which is what he was elected to do – he’s been busy standing up for his own; back rooming (well okay, in full view of the press) with foreign government players who are trying their hand at running the country, all without the need to prove their citizenship! Meanwhile back at Ranch Canberra, other elected officials who arguably have more allegiance to the country, are being stripped of their rank, leaving the Australian Government looking like a bunch of noodles. Goes to show you don’t actually need to be elected or sitting in government to influence Australian politics, if you can offer enlightenment on a mountain of

yuan. As if by magic, all doors become open, and Australian politician pockets become wormholes leading straight to the dizzying depths of the Chinese business community’s coffers. Now, selling yourself for money is ‘the oldest profession in the world’, but elected officials really need to distance themselves from this rotten behaviour. Corruption isn’t ever going to leave politics but if whole countries can be banned from the Olympics for unsporting behaviour, why not inside a parliament, for undemocratic behaviour. Buying favours isn’t what the majority can do, we vote with our feet. Is our democracy so up for sale that our votes don’t count anymore? Are the “deplorables” dropping down a peg, in importance, losing favour to wealthy business people who don’t give two hoots about the issues that affect us? Even ASIO is bunkered down, defending the realm, trying to keep the Chinese tide from washing over the Capital – and it’s their own politicians who are the weakest link! ASIO director-general Duncan Lewis has said: “Espionage and foreign interference continue to occur on an unprecedented scale

and this has the potential to cause serious harm to the nation’s sovereignty, the integrity of our political system, our national security capabilities, our economy and other interests.” With respect, the leaders of a country aren’t actually important (they come and go), but the role they are tasked with is. The position is important. Chinese money isn’t respecting the position, but apparently has magic powers, erasing our elected leaders’ memories as to who put them in the House and who they represent. Given Chinese billionaires are puppeteering both sides of the House, you have to wonder what Confucius might have to say about all that. Turning to philosophy in the face of betrayal is therapeutic. “The superior man understands

` With respect, the leaders of a country aren’t actually important (they come and go), but the role they are tasked with is. The position is important... a

what is right; the inferior man understands what to sell,” Confucius once said in the 4th century BC. I suppose it’s only been 2400 years; there’s still time to learn the difference between right and wrong. He also said: “In a country well governed, poverty is something to be ashamed of. In a country badly governed, wealth is something to be ashamed of.” I hate to point out the obvious but... The voting public is pretty clear on what they think about having our democratic process undermined by self-serving politicians who have no right to sell off our resources or political influence to the highest bidder. This is seedy business, and while Dastyari was once considered one of the okay guys, no one it seems is immune to prostituting their values as an elected representative of a nation who possibly can’t judge because would they be so upstanding in the face of a quick buck opportunity? Vanity, greed or stupidity got the better of Sam – which makes him one of Confucius’s inferior men. The last thing Australia needs are inferior men and women falling over themselves to get elected

because it’s an opportunity to line their pockets. In a similar vein, look at former Australian trade minister Andrew Robb, the architect of the China-Australia Free Trade Agreement, who left parliament one day before the federal election last year, and walked straight into an $880,000-a-year job with a Chinese billionaire who has close ties to the Chinese Communist Party. Half his luck, but if that billionaire happened to be in turn linked to the committee which makes trade policy for China, I hope Robb’s confidentiality agreement is watertight because his inside knowledge is probably... priceless. The Ming Vase of trade information. The fact Australia will honey glaze Chinese moguls with red carpet welcomes is an inevitability, so it might boil down to the common sense of the voting public to ensure we are not left out of the trimmings from these lucrative exchanges. One thing’s for certain, if it costs $55,000 to buy a seat next to Bill Shorten in the Parliament House café for lunch, it’s time to create a political equivalent of the Australian Sports Anti-doping Authority to flush out the dopes from federal government.

COUNCIL WATCH

Dubbo Photo News’s independent reporting on and analysis of Dubbo Regional Council activities

Mayor keen to have Local Govt meetings held in regions By YVETTE AUBUSSON-FOLEY FRESH from attending the Local Government NSW (LGNSW) annual conference in Sydney last week, Mayor of Dubbo Regional Council Cr Ben Shields has said: “There is a perception that LGNSW could better reflect and represent rural and regional councils. I am keen to have board meetings held away from the Sydney Headquarters and for the board members to meet communities from around the state.” During the 2017 LGNSW Annual Conference, Cr Shields was elected by fellow councillors from across NSW. It was a vote of confidence from local government peers while, at home, questions about Council’s former General Manager Mark Riley’s exit were still making headlines. As director of the Board of Local Government NSW (LGNSW), Cr Shields says he will advocate for the Association to have a presence in the regions. “It effectively means I will have a direct insight on local government matters all over the state. This is valuable industry knowledge that I will be able to bring back to the Dubbo Region and Western NSW. “Being re-elected to the Board will allow me to continue looking at other local government areas and through that identify what and how we can do better in the Dubbo region,” he said.

` I may be one of the few councillors who actually supports rate pegging and it is important that the full story is presented and considered by the LGNSW board... a

Mayor of Dubbo Regional Council Ben Shields: ““LGNSW should also be arguing for reform in how councils raise revenue to finance services.”

Key issues which Cr Shields rates highly include rate pegging and how councils raise revenue to finance services. “The local government sector as a whole has a number of challenges ahead in the com-

State puts in $800,000 for livestock market truck wash MEMBER for Dubbo Troy Grant has announced that Dubbo Regional Council will receive $819,467 from the NSW Government under this program to fund the $1.2 million Dubbo Regional Livestock Markets truck wash project. Mr Grant said this investment would significantly reduce costs to business and industry. “This project will allow for an additional truck wash bay, installation of new pumps to improve water pressure among other upgrades and improvements”, Mr Grant said. “These improvements will increase the site’s efficiency by decreasing waiting times, allowing for more efficient movement of vehicles through the wash and back to work,” Mr Grant said. The project is one of 67 across regional NSW to have been approved for funding in the third round of the NSW Government’s Fixing Country Roads program.

COUNCIL NEWS... IN BRIEF At the Monday, December 11, meeting of council, Cr Greg Mohr said: “The Event Development Fund (EDF) aims to assist events across the region grow, develop and become sustainable, and the 2016/2017 Major Events Sponsor Program (MESP) was introduced to help secure and retain events that directly stimulate the region’s economy. “The events receiving funding will return a combined economic benefit to the LGA in excess of $4 million in 2018,” he said. Council’s Economic Development, Business and Corporate committee recommen-

ing period including the potential new Local Government Act, continual arguments about rate pegging legislation and reforming how council services are financed,” Cr Shields said.

Cr Greg Mohr

“I may be one of the few councillors who actually supports rate pegging and it is important that the full story is presented and considered by the LGNSW board when determining policy,” he said. “LGNSW should also be arguing for reform in how councils raise revenue to finance services. The current funding model, which includes a mix of State and Federal grants as well as collecting rates, is complicated and a time-consuming exercise.” LGNSW is the peak industry association which represents the interests of all NSW councils by advocating and supporting member councils and providing a range of services including advice on policy, industrial relations and legal matters, mentoring programs and professional development for councillors and council staff. Cr Shields was a previous member of the LGNSW board for ten years until 2016 when he was forced to step down due to the merger of Dubbo City and Wellington Councils.

QUESTIONS FOR COUNCIL Do you have a question for Dubbo Regional Council? Send it to Dubbo Photo News and we will put your question to council then publish their response here. Email feedback@dubbophotonews.com.au, post to our office, or phone Dubbo Photo News on 6885 4433 ••• How will the 2018-19 rate peg for NSW local councils affect our region? Dubbo Regional Council director corporate services Craig Giffen said: The recent 2018/2019 rate peg of up to 2.3 per cent, as announced by the Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART), is applicable to Dubbo Regional Council and indeed to all other amalgamated Councils in NSW. Under the provisions of the Local Government Amendment (Rates-Merged Council Areas) Bill 2017, merged Councils are able to increase total general rates by the rate cap percentage each year, but are not able to apply for a Special Rate Variation for an increase in rates over and above the rate cap amount, unless one of the previously merged Councils had an approved Special Rate Variation in place prior to the merger for any of the next three financial years to 2019/2020. In respect of the current 2017/2018 financial year, Council previously resolved to increase total general rates by the rate pegging limit of 1.5 per cent, with the budgets for forward years out to 2019/2020 being prepared on the basis of maintaining the former Dubbo City and Wellington Councils projected rate paths of applying the rate pegging limit each year. ••• The metal ‘label’ normally attached to the curb in our street (indicating where a hydrant or water supply is located) has started peeling back and could be dangerous if a bike rider were to ride into the sharp metal edge, or if a child caught their foot on it. Who would be responsible for fixing or replacing the label? Council: The customer can phone Council’s Customer Service Centre on 6801 4000 to report their concern. Alternatively, email council@dubbo.nsw.gov.au. ••• Why have there been restrictions on how many people can attend Carols in the Caves? Council: There have always been restrictions to how many people could go on tours in the Wellington Caves, and there have been no changes in the last 18 months. This is due to WHS safe work procedures. With regards to Carols in the Cave, the restriction is because 150 people can reasonably fit comfortably in the space at any given time as determined by our WHS officer.

dations will be formally considered in reports at the next ordinary meeting, on Monday, December 18.

Programs addressing Intergenerational disadvantage IT has been recommended that Dubbo Regional Council endorse a comprehensive report from its staff which examines programs addressing inter-generational disadvantage in regional centres including Burnie in Tasmania and Logan in Queensland. “In places across Australia, local government has been stepping up to address complex social problems. In October, Dubbo Regional Council signalled its intention to do the same. “This report will play a central role in guiding Council’s consideration of exactly how local government in the region can move on long standing social problems,” Cr Stephen Lawrence said. “The committee has noted that successful community efforts such as ‘Burnie Works’ are the result of long term and entrenched collaborative activity designed to assist the community address complex and entrenched social issues. “What programs such as ‘Burnie Works’ demonstrate is that there are many programs and services available. Key in tackling social problems, however it is collaboration that ensures the community is getting maximum ‘bang for its buck’ - this

is what the ‘collective impact’ model is all about,” he said.

Review of the Significant Tree Register

COUNCIL’S Infrastructure, Community and Recreation Committee (ICRC) has recommended that the reviewed Tree Preservation Order and the Significant Tree Register for 2018 be adopted. “Dubbo City Council made a resolution to review the Significant Tree Register and the Tree Preservation Order in 1995, and it is now proposed that Dubbo Regional Council continue with the current Register and Preservation Order for the next 12=month period,” Cr Lawrence said this week. “All the trees that had been listed on the 2017 Dubbo Regional Council Significant Tree Register have been desktop audited to determine their condition and their suitability to be retained on the register,” he said. “A total of six Significant Tree nominations, consisting of five individual trees and an avenue of 18 trees, have been received throughout 2017, including (trees at) Dubbo, Wellington and the village of Geurie. “All these nominations have been assessed and are recommended for inclusion within the Significant Tree Register for 2018,” he said. It was noted that no trees have been removed from the Significant Tree Register since 2014.

Dubbo’s Bluebells! Contributed by ELSIE HOWE TAKE your hats off to the local species of Australia’s bluebells – native to this area. The species of Wahlenbergia has been popping up all over town since the onset of warmer weather. In spite of the flimsiest of stems which carry tiny, delicate-petalled blooms, and microscopic seeds, the toughest of spots are our bluebells’ preferences to put down their roots. Road-centre nature strips such as the one opposite the Whylandra Street Fire Station, unconcreted patches near roundabouts such as at Erskine Street opposite the PCYC, and unmown, unturfed footpaths have been sporting drifts of hazy blue from these relatives of the Scottish Bluebells. (The English Bluebells are in a completely different plant family.) The patch shown in this photograph snapped in midMay this year was alongside the edge of the cyclepath leading from the western end of the L.H. Ford Bridge to the Tracker Riley Cyclepath. In the immediate region

round Dubbo, 11 species of Wahlenbergia have so far been recorded, as listed in Flora List of the Dubbo Area and Central Western Slopes, available at www.dubbofieldnats.org.au. That’s a significant number given that Australia has a total of around 26 species. If you’re fortunate enough to have some of these Aussie Survivors at your place, you can do your bit in preserving the drastically-reduced number of native plant species in our urban areas by learning to recognise them when they begin to sprout up each season, and mowing round them at least until after they have shed their seed from the elongated, spiky-headed seed cases shown in the photo. Feedback from Dubbo Regional Council in May indicated their staff would attempt to do this where feasible. Right: As much as we all enjoy the introduced street trees in bloom at this time of year, here are some which have been in the area for much, much longer, and deserve to be not only recognised but preserved and encouraged!

WELLINGTON NEWS Carols In The Cave to echo the real meaning of Christmas By YVETTE AUBUSSON-FOLEY THIS will be the second year Sing Australia Dubbo will perform at the Wellington Carols in the Cave but the experience is a highlight for singers and audience alike. “It’s got a real atmosphere. The sound travels into the narrow spaces so the acoustics are very solemn. That humid air is also very good for singing,” said Michelle Peak, a Sing Australia Dubbo performer. “Last year we forgot how dark it gets down there too. We’ll be bringing our torches so we can see the music clearly!” she said. Carols in the Caves have been a highlight in the unique natural feature’s annual calendar for 30 years, coordinated by the Uniting Church. “It’s wonderful. The acoustics are beautiful. You’re facing the Alter Rock inside the Cathedral Cave which looks like an altar. It’s quite a big cavernous area. It’s a nice sacred time; a time to think about the real meaning of Christmas,” Carols in the Cave organiser Cherie Spratt said. Dubbo Sing Australia will share the task of leading the carols with Wellington Acapella singers, The

New Return and Earn station in Wellington WELLINGTON has beaten many other towns and cities around the region, becoming one of the first to have a Return and Earn collection point. The state government rolled out the first of hundreds of the collection points planned across NSW on December 1. The move is a response to the need to reduce drink container litter. About 160 million drink containers were littered in 2014-15, costing the people of NSW millions of dollars in clean-up fees, according to the Environment Protection Authority (EPA). Drink containers account for

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE LEGISLATION PASSES PARLIAMENT

Last week the Australian Parliament passed the Same-Sex Marriage legislation. Here is a copy of my speech to the Parliament: I support the Marriage Amendment (Definition and Religious Freedoms) Bill 2017. This parliament passes legislation on almost every day that it sits. Some bills are forged into laws in the fiery furnace of partisan politics. Most legislation passes without much debate, controversy or fanfare. But this bill is neither of those; nevertheless, it will be long remembered. It comes to this place after consultation with the Australian public by way of a national postal survey. The ability to settle matters of national significance peacefully at the ballot box is a feature of our nation that we should all be justly proud of. The survey process that led to this bill being introduced to the House of Representatives this week saw a national participation rate of 79.5 per cent. Australians were keen to be heard on this issue. In Calare, 78.1 per cent of voters returned their forms. This high participation rate is important for two reasons. Firstly, it can’t be argued that there isn’t a national mandate for this change to how our society defines marriage. Secondly, no Australian of voting age can say that

their voice wasn’t heard. Nobody can say that their opinion wasn’t counted. Every Australian got their say. That’s democracy. As you would expect from a country electorate in the heartland of the nation, the debate in our part of the world was, for the most part, very respectful. In central-western New South Wales and around the nation, the result was clear and conclusive. In Calare, 54,091 people, or 60.2 per cent, voted in favour of changing the definition of marriage, and 35,779 people, or 39.8 per cent, voted against. These figures were very close to the national result. As those figures also highlight, there are significant numbers of people on either side of this issue. With the nation having delivered its verdict, the will of the Australian people now needs to be passed into law, and that responsibility falls to us. This is the moment for the Australian people to see their parliament at its best. I followed the passage of this legislation through the Senate and I was impressed with the respectful and constructive manner in which the debate was conducted. I’m confident that the remainder of this debate will also be conducted in the best traditions of the communities we all represent. Some in our region may find this change in how marriage is defined difficult to accept and reconcile. It is a significant change, but I ask those people to try to accept it because now is the time for the nation to come together. We should unite across city communities and country communities. Everyone, no matter how they voted, across Calare and across Australia, should now unify. There are same-sex couples currently waiting to get married in the Calare electorate. They should now have that opportunity, without delay or bitterness, and they should be treated with respect and dignity by all—and I know that, in Calare, they will be. Before the last general election, I undertook to respect the will of the Calare electorate on this issue. I said it and I meant it. I honour that commitment today. To those same-sex couples in Calare waiting to be married, to their families and friends and to those samesex couples in Calare who may marry in the future: you have my congratulations and best wishes and those of the electorate. Above all, we wish you happiness in the years ahead. I cast my vote in favour of this legislation for you.

WELLINGTON PUBLIC SCHOOL PRESENTATION DAY

PUSH FOR THE MURRAY DARLING MEDICAL SCHOOL CONTINUES

Last week I brought the Parliament’s attention to the continued push for the Murray Darling Medical School. Here is a copy of my speech to the House of Representatives: There is a chronic shortage of doctors in country Australia. This is well known and it has been a source of great concern to country communities everywhere. Access to medical professionals and the services they provide is something city people take for granted, but country people know all too well what it’s like to go without them.

Andrew presenting Keegan Thomas with the View Club Award.

It’s the end of the school year and this week I attended the Wellington Public School presentation. Congratulations to relieving principal Deborah McCreadie, staff, students and their families on another terrific school year!

THANK YOU TO OUR TEACHERS

December brings school presentations, school holidays and HSC results. It’s also the time of year that our teachers can take a wellearned break as we head in to Christmas. One of the great strengths of our region is our schools. Right across the board we are lucky to have a strong and vibrant education sector. So to all of our teachers, I would like to extend the thanks of our community for a job well done in 2017. We hope you get a wellearned rest over the Christmas period because you have truly earned it! You are very much appreciated.

Charles Sturt University plans to quarantine 80 per cent of the places for students from regional, rural and remote areas, because, as Charles Sturt University has shown with its many other courses, students from the country who are trained in the country are far more likely to work in regional Australia after they graduate. The course work at the Murray Darling Medical School would specifically prepare students for future practice in rural communities. It’s a model that we know works. It has been successfully implemented by James Cook University in North Queensland. Charles Sturt University is already leading the way in training the next generation of country health professionals. As the lead partner in the Three Rivers University Department of Rural Health, it is training graduates in occupational therapy, radiation services, nursing, physiotherapy, pharmacy, podiatry, para-medicine and social work. In recent years, there has been much work to close the great divide in medical services between the city and country. But, until we solve this long-running problem of getting doctors to practice in the bush, equity in medical services between city and country will remain an elusive dream. The time for the Murray Darling Medical School and equity for rural patients has come!

DO YOU HAVE AN EVENT THAT NEEDS FUNDING?

I’m encouraging organisations in Calare to apply for Round Two of the Australian Government’s Building Better Regions Fund (BBRF). Under the Community Investments Stream grants are available for community activities such as festivals, expos, new or expanded local events, strategic regional plans, and leadership and capability strengthening activities Submissions close on 19 December 2017. For more information on the program, or to submit an application, visit www.business.gov.au/assistance/buildingbetter-regions-fund Remember, if we don’t apply for the funding here, the money will go to somewhere else in Australia!

CALARE STUDENTS GET HEAD START IN STEM Applications are open for a new program to make access to Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) easier for 1200 students living in regional and remote areas of Australia. I’m encouraging local students to apply for the scholarships of up to $18,000, made possible by a $24 million commitment from the Australian Government. This is a fantastic opportunity for local students to gain the support they need to study in fields with strong employment outcomes. These scholarships are about making student life easier for students in Calare and making STEM courses more attractive study options. The scholarships will operate from 2017-18 to 2020-21, with the first round of 600 scholarships being awarded for the 2018 academic year, and a second round of 600 for 2019. The first round of applications closes on 8 January 2018. Scholarship applications for the 2019 academic year will open in the second half of 2018. For further information and to apply visit the Department of Education and Training website.

SHOP LOCAL THIS HOLIDAY PERIOD

In the lead-up to Christmas Day I’m urging the communities of Calare to back small business and shop local. The holiday season is when many small businesses work their hardest and employ more locals to meet the demands of the Christmas retail trade period. It is important we back our small businesses which are the engine room of our economy and we can do this by shopping local this holiday season. You can find something special and truly unique locally for family, friends and loved ones to enjoy and Calare has wonderful small businesses offering an abundance of choice.

HELP AVAILABLE FOR CALARE SENIORS Residents in Calare over the age of 55 can access a new, free support network that aims to help with legal and aged care rights.

Photographer Dillon Price explained, “The photo was taken at John Oxley Park near the Low Level Bridge in Wellington where the Bell and Macquarie Rivers meet. Saturday saw more than 75mm rain fall in the Bell River catchment area which led to the river running quickly. The photo shows the contrast between the fast-flowing Bell River and calmer, cleaner Macquarie river.” PHOTO: DILLON PRICE PHOTOGRAPHY: WELLINGTON NSW. WWW. DILLONPRICEPHOTOGRAPHY. COM

Wedding in the wild SET on the sweeping grounds of Taronga Western Plains Zoo, Dubbo, the Savannah Function Centre offers a truly unique wedding venue for your special day. With tailored wedding packages to ensure every detail is perfect, the Savannah experience is one that you simply won’t forget. Locals Aimee Endacott and Josh Toole were married at the Zoo on March 18 this year, and are proud to share memories made to last a lifetime. “We were absolutely delighted with the stunning venue and incredible service for our wedding at Taronga Western Plains Zoo,” Aimee said. Whether it’s a ceremony overlooking the lake, or at one of the Zoo’s beautiful picnic grounds, there are several stunning venues to choose from to say ‘I do’. Its central location is perfect for Dubbo locals, but it also offers something a little special as a secluded venue. “Our ceremony took place by the beautiful Savannah Lake with 100 guests. The deck was adorned with gorgeous floral arrangements created by my mother, which was very special,” Aimee said. “Guests enjoyed delicious canapés and refreshments on the manicured lawns, and were well-catered for while Josh and I had wedding photos taken. We all enjoyed a divine three-course meal prepared by the Zoo’s chefs, with excellent service from the professional team of staff. “Planning for our wedding was a very smooth and easy-going process, thanks to the dedication of Zoo

staff. Nothing was too much trouble and we were in great hands from start to finish,” Aimee said. The ambient atmosphere of the Savannah Function Centre sets the scene for a truly impeccable reception evening shared with friends and family. “I was really pleased with the value for money offered at the Zoo. A bar package was particularly helpful for us, and breakfast the next morning was fantastic,” Aimee said. “It’s reassuring to know that smaller details are looked after, including the lectern and microphone for speeches, the gift and cake tables, and complimentary parking. “Many of the guests mentioned how impressive the Zoo was, and that it made such an incredible wedding venue. Having my wedding at the Zoo was a really memorable experience, and I’d gladly recommend it to anyone seeking a great value, stunning location for their wedding,” Aimee said. Taronga Western Plains Zoo also offers the opportunity to include an animal experience as part of a wedding package. Though for many, the simple African-safari touches in the Savannah Function Centre give just the right feel to reflect the unique, special Zoo venue.

‘Twas the Week After Christmas Photos by GREG MARGINSON A large audience of family and friends and members of the community enjoyed the fun musical presented on Sunday, November 26, at Macquarie Conservatorium. This festive season musical from Macquarie Conservatorium’s Youth Music Theatre was a hilarious and heart-warming story exploring the real meaning of Christmas. The North Pole has lost its Christmas spirit. It’s been years since the elves and reindeer have gotten along and this has resulted in only a 60 per cent success rate in present delivery this year. Will a holiday in the sun help remind them what Christmas is really all about?!

SUDOKU EXTRA

The idea of Go Figure is to arrive at the figures given at the bottom and right-hand columns of the diagram by following the arithmetic signs in the order they are given (that is, from left to right and top to bottom). Use only the numbers below the diagram to complete its blank squares and use each of the nine numbers only once.

Place a number in the empty boxes in such a way that each row across, each column down and each small 9-box square contains all of the numbers from one to nine.

A cross wrapped in a sprig of basil is suspended from the wire, and the water keeps the basil fresh. Every day during the holiday season, a family member dips the cross and basil into some holy water and sprinkles each room of the house. In addition to the religious significance, this ritual is said to keep away the kallikantzeri, mischievous goblins that appear during the 12 days of Christmas. z Thought for the Day: “What is freedom of expression?

CRICKET

14s enjoying their time in the sun... and under lights By GEOFF MANN Photos by MEL POCKNALL OUR sports photographer Mel was at No.1 Oval on Friday night for what is becoming one of the most sought after experiences for young cricketers – the chance to step out on the hallowed turf like “the big boys”. Last week it was Macquarie’s turn on centre wicket when they clashed with RSL Colts. The first 20 overs is played before the McDonalds match and the second team bats between the senior teams’ innings. This great initiative leads to some fun-filled banter at schools across the city each Monday. A few wickets or a six are what everyone wants to brag about! This Friday, the two Dubbo 12s take on each other.

TOUCH

National Aboriginal Touch was a real Knockout! By GEOFF MANN Action photos by MEL POCKNALL

WITH so many events crowding our end of year, we decided to hold this prestigious tournament over until now. Touch is a great sport, bringing together people of all ages and offering a fun but competitive activity. Last month, the Wellington Aboriginal Health Service partnered with Touch Australia and the Quit Be Fit Foundation to sponsor the inaugural National Touch titles at the magnificent Apex Oval complex. Teams travelled from as far as the northern tip of Western Australia, Northern Territory, Queensland, ACT, Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania to enjoy competitions in three grades against some strong local combinations. Congratulations to all the teams that participated over the weekend. We are looking forward to having both these senior groups as well as juniors back in Dubbo on the June Long Weekend next year to grow the event. Perhaps it will one day mirror the remarkable rugby league Koori Knockout in both numbers and the scope of community input.

By GEOFF MANN THE Dubbo-dominated Orana Outlaws went within 15 runs of claiming back-to-back Plan-B Regional Cricket titles at the SCG on Sunday. Watched by thousands of fans in a match live-streamed around the world, the Outlaws earned a spot in the grand final after toughing out a 3-run win against the Wagga Wagga Sloggers in the afternoon semi-final. The final was a fascinating struggle as Newcastle came out blazing, then stumbled as Will Lindsay curved the pink ball through the defences of the best two Blasters and picked up another in a dazzling spell before conceding some easy runs in the last few overs. Chasing 169 was never going to be easy, but when tyro Brock Larance clouted six boundaries on his way to 36, and the evergreen Wes Giddings scored at a run-a-ball to reach 16, the total looked gettable.

None for 50 after 5 overs had critics and supporters sensing a miracle, but when the openers departed the innings slowed and it was the powerhouse Newcastle attack which stopped the Outlaws raid, all out for 153 in the last over. Congratulations to this mixture of young veterans and more mature players who showed once again the depth of talent in the Western Zone. Perhaps the washed out preliminary carnival cost the team valuable match practice and the absence of Country Cricketer of the Year, Jordan Moran, and fast-bowling all-rounders Ben Patterson and Mat Skinner certainly played a part. Well done Pom-stralian Greg Buckley on your leadership. Along with the golden gloves and astute cricketing brain of coach – and keeper – Jason Ryan, you can hold your head up high. Some of the Outlaws are in action at Tamworth this weekend in the annual Country Northern Colts Carnival.

A year of success for local boxers By SARAH HARVEY IT’S been a year full of triumphs for John Hill and Enja Prest as the pair represented Dubbo at both state and national boxing titles, bringing home a series of wins. When they’re not at school or work, they’re hitting the ring at Pound for Pound to train under the watchful eyes of Robert (Gummy) Toomey and Graham Wallace. Living away from major cities has seen them travel all over the country and abroad for competitions, travelling to New Zealand, Tasmania, Victoria and Queensland to compete against the best of the best in the country, with both boxers successfully winning ten out of 13 competitions in 2017. Boxing has always been a strong interest for John Hill,

but it wasn’t until he started training with Robert Toomey that he realised he wanted to take the sport further. Now, 18 months on, the 17-year-old student has managed to secure titles at both state and national levels, quickly making a name for himself in the world of boxing. John says it’s the training and discipline of the sport that makes him love it so much and is looking forward to what next year has to offer. “I’m looking forward to going up a weight and following the same titles and hopefully going overseas. Hopefully I can make a career out of it after I graduate,” John told Dubbo Photo News. Enja Prest is no stranger to competitive sports. The self-confessed ‘adrenaline junky’ is not only a rising star in boxing, but also a keen

horse rider who rides race horses for local horse trainer Connie Greig. Since taking up boxing two and a half years ago, Enja has earnt herself many outstanding wins, taking home a Novice Title and more recently an Interstate Title which she proudly won in Dubbo. She says she’s looking forward to pushing her career further in 2018 and is hoping to secure a national title in the near future. Enja says the sport is a huge confidence booster, however it all comes down to the commitment of each individual. “You have to be dedicated in the sport. It’s an individual sport and at the end of the day you’re the one in the ring, so whatever happens, it falls back on you. “It’s pretty black and white,” Enja said.

RUGBY LEAGUE

Best wishes go out to Bear Hall ONE of the most loved and esteemed footballers to have ever graced the playing fields in western NSW has had a major set-back as he battles health concerns. Steven “Bear” Hall was a silken player, a tremendous leader and magnificent role model for everything good in rugby league. He and his wife Marg and their kids ingrained themselves with communities wherever they lived – Walgett, Coonamble and Dubbo – and, over the past decade

or so, in the western suburbs of Sydney. The Walgett-born five-eighth or centre represented Country, coached premiership teams at Dubbo CYMS, Macquarie and Mendooran, and was given the honour of tutoring the Maroon and Gold team representing the bush against the might of Sydney-based, mostly ex-country products. Bear travelled across the Western Plains running clinics, propping up fledgling junior competitions, all the time en-

deavouring to bring out the full potential in those with whom he worked. Whilst he is not travelling so well at the moment, Bear and his family will be buoyed by the love and prayers of his countless friends in Dubbo and surrounding towns. Bear is pictured, right, at the recent Koori Knockout in Dubbo. He stopped in on his way out west to visit family and friends. PHOTO: MEL POCKNALL

SWIMMING

Ducks wallow in pond for the penultimate swim of the year as the Two Ronnies make a special appearance!

THE Sunday swimmers have been growing in numbers in recent weeks. Perhaps it’s the lure of Christmas bounty or maybe a few who have bulked up during the long winter have decided to shed for the seasonal celebrations! “The flock swelled with 23 feathered ones waddling to the duck pond on Sunday,” according to Publicity officer, Judy Walsh. “The lure of Christmas hams perhaps; producing a number of breakers!” Impressive super-charged Ducks Mark Scullard and Jacob Pearce had a great tussle in the final of

the 25 metres, separated by just 0.05 seconds as their wing tips clipped the wall. “They were in a league of their own as the rest of the finals featured breakers galore,” Judy laughed. Congratulations to the two Ronnies, Soden and Everett, who had everyone cackling when they claimed the November point-score. “They may not agree but I reckon they are a great couple of old ducks who flap around and gain ground and make everyone happy. They’re the heart and soul of our club,” Judy added.

Ducks are reminded it is your turn to do the raffles at the RSL club tomorrow (Friday) night. Ronny E’s expecting a good turnout. And the club sends ‘get well’ wishes to Margaret Twohill, Bill Greenwood and Noela Schloeffell who have been noticeable by their absence poolside in recent months. The annual Christmas party follows this week’s last swim of the year. It will be the last chance for quackers to win oinks so get in early, pull on your togs and swim like a turkey!

TRIBUTE

Trudy Claven, the “other half” of Dubbo Soccer farewelled THE passing of Mrs Trudy Claven recently brought to a close a wonderful partnership that has left us a lasting legacy. Trudy and her husband Hans came to Dubbo in 1951 and over the next 55 years forged strong links in their new home after leaving Holland and the destruction of World War II. Trudy supported her husband for decades, as the man known as “Mr Soccer” formed a fledgling Dubbo United team in the first few years of his arrival. They travelled together to play matches in the Inter-town competition against Orange, Forbes, Mudgee, Narromine and Parkes for a few years before that initial interest in the “new” European

sport waned. Bill Heinle, a fellow newcomer who arrived in Dubbo in 1962, remembers the days well. “We played our local matches each Saturday and then joined forces as Dubbo United on Sundays to compete against other towns,” Bill told Dubbo Photo News. “I can’t recall all the teams but they were mostly made up of European migrants who had arrived after the war. There was United and a team of mostly Italians, one of Greeks and lots of Dutch players who started the sport out west.” In 1963 Hans formed the Dubbo Soccer Association and Trudy was sideline or in the canteen on many occasions when he played and refereed local and senior representa-

tive games. “Trudy was a real behind-thescenes organiser. I can remember she made the uniforms for our referees. In those days you could not buy soccer clothing so Trudy stepped up. I think we were the best dressed referees in the world,” Bill laughed. Bill also remembers how Hans and Trudy joined forces to introduce juniors into the then town of Dubbo. “They were so keen to give kids a chance to know about the sport, they drove around the schools and threw soccer balls over the fence. Soon kids started kicking them around the playgrounds and in 1964, I think, the Dubbo Junior Association was formed.”

The family name lives on through the Hans Claven Oval on the riverbank just to the north of the L.H. Ford Bridge. Like Apex Oval, this project was developed through the blood and sweat of people like Hans and Trudy, as well as generous benefactors including Jack Keizer who donated his time and heavy machinery to transform the rich black riverbank soils adjacent to the old White Bridge at the bottom of Bultje St, into a turf soccer field. “I can remember Trudy and Hans getting stuck into the planting of turf with a swag of other volunteers. It was a true labour of love – a team effort,” Bill remembered with a smile. A couple of hundred metres to

the south is a developing complex of multi-purpose fields including over 20 football fields and there are even more to come. These grounds, the foresight of the Clavens and the drive of subsequent committees and Council, has our city in the perfect position to grow the world game. Sometimes we take things for granted in our community. It is good to acknowledge the generous contributions of those who forged the path. Hans Claven Oval may one day be renamed the Trudy and Hans Claven Field in honour of these two great citizens. It would be a wonderful tribute to the couple who introduced soccer to our city.

FOOTBALL

Indianna is the top of the crop FOOTBALLER Indianna Asimus has always been destined to rise to the top in football and this week she capped her school career when she was named in the Australian Schools team. Indianna grew up in Dubbo but was lured to Newcastle to join the Emerging Jets squad last season. She has now played 15 games with the talented group and is on the cusp of breaking into the W-League team - next season if not this one - according to Jets officials. Indianna shone as a junior at school and in the local competitions where she played alongside current Canberra United and Young Matilda, Grace Maher. Indi couldn’t wait to catch up with family friend and Spurs mentor Bob Hughes. She presented him with a signed ball and other “treasures” from the “awesome Pacific Schools Games” in Adelaide. Bob said, “She is a credit to her mum Gwen and dad Trent who have sup-

ported her throughout her career. Indi has great natural ability but she has worked really hard to achieve what she has. She is the captain of Hunter Sports High at Gateshead in Newcastle and is obviously catching the eye of selectors.” Coincidentally, Indi’s school is only a stone’s throw from where the Orana Spurs life member began his education in the southern suburb of Newcastle. Indi’s team won the School Games, she was the leading goal-scorer and is now in the All Australian team! What a great story of another of our emerging sporting talents. There was a much sadder note for Indianna during her time in Dubbo. Before her trip here, she had been spending time with four or five of the Indian Team at the Pacific Games. As a mark of friendship, Indianna gave one of the girls her tracksuit top. When Indianna arrived here in Dubbo she received the news that one of those girls had drowned. It was a very sad revelation.
